Thai people and tourists both like shopping and eating. That’s why you can find markets all around Thailand. Like every other world metropolis city Bangkok has many different markets. Especially in the weekends and during the evening. The Talad Rot Fai market in Bangkok is a outdoor night market held on weekend days. The market area is behind the huge Seacon Square Shopping Mall (Srinagarindra Rd – Soi Srinagarindra 51). Vintage, classic second hand items and retro style items are just like in most western countries very popular. The Rot Fai market is specialized in these items. The items are sold in the open air and also in real antique boutiques and walk in shops. Besides these top quality 2nd hand stuff you can also buy new stuff. Food is served as streetfood or in restaurants. Some of these restaurants have live music bands. The market area is very specious and feels not busy or overcrowded.
